Do you know someone planning to get married?
Our new “Engaged! Marriage Preparation for Couples” app is designed to help men and women get ready for their new lives together as husband and wife.
Divided into 15 topics, the app provides introductory as well as in-depth Christian teaching and articles, and includes more than 16 hours of audio and video content designed for couples to review and discuss together.
Research shows that couples who devote time to premarital counselling are both happier in the short-term and more likely to avoid divorce, long-term.
In fact, according to marriage experts Dr. Jason Carroll and Dr. William J. Doherty, couples who participate in premarital programs experience a 30 percent increase in marital satisfaction as compared with those who decide to forge it alone. Couples who proactively address typical areas of marital challenge report improved communication, better conflict-management skills, higher dedication to one’s mate, greater emphasis on the positive aspects of a relationship, and improved overall relationship quality.
In short, premarital counseling and education is a terrific and worthwhile investment.
This new app also costs just a little bit more than your typical cup of coffee. For just $4.99, engaged couples can have volumes of trustworthy and helpful counsel delivered right to their phone or tablet.
“Engaged!” is available via iTunes.
